When it comes to winter fashion it’s all about layering and bundling up. Throw on a plaid scarf and mix it with a contrasting plaid blazer. Or, why not pack a blanket and find the perfect spot in the park for a little romantic picnic. Check out this guide from Note to Self to find out what you’ll need. And you gotta check out the latest issue of Sweet Paul, he shares this lovely idea for a Tartan holiday wreath.

Time to break out your old thermos and put it to good use. Wouldn’t this make for a cute table arrangement?

A holiday party wouldn’t be the same without a little egg nog. Yum! You can see more of this pretty holiday tablescape, by Janie of The Brides Cafe, on Green Wedding Shoes.

Okay, this is a bit over the top, but seriously love the drama of a big chandelier mixed with an everyday object coated in strips of plaid. Makes us want to sacrifice a few old plaid shirts and cover a chair or a mantel or maybe even a staircase. MAC cosmetics created “A Tartan Tale” themed holiday party for their 2010 product launch. You can find more inspiration here.

Who designed the dress with the red top, full white skirt?

That skirt is STUNNING. One of my brides incorporated her family's tartan pattern subtly into her details. Similar to a family crest, it added a special touch and was very beautiful.
